Eve Pell was a senior staff reporter at the Center for Investigative Reporting from 1988 to 1994. Her print reporting won awards from the American Civil Liberties Union, the Playboy Foundation and Media Alliance. Her story on secret presidential directives was named one of America’s Most Censored Stories. SUNY Press recently published "We Used to Own the Bronx: Memoirs of a Former Debutante." To her delight, it has gone into a second printing. Eve served as reporter and associate producer for three PBS documentaries. “The Best Campaign Money Can Buy,” won a Columbia-DuPont award in 1992, “Heartbeat of America,” won a Cine Golden Apple a year later. The third was “The Battle Over School Choice.” Eve has written articles for Ms., Women's Sports, The Nation, Runners World, the San Francisco Examiner, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Sacramento Bee, and many other publications. Her books include The Big Chill about the Reagan administration and Maximum Security on conditions in California prisons. She wrote a series of articles for Pacific News Service on senior athletes and commentaries for KQED-FM. In 2006, she wrote articles for Marin Magazine about Muslims, land preservation, and Muir Woods National Monument.
